Plague Zombies, Part 2

The last batch of Zombie models wasn't doing it for me. They were still too much like Plaguebearers with them holding the swords and all. I searched my bitz and found some old Fantasy ghoul and zombie sprues I had and tried some of their hands in place of the weapons. The ghoul hands worked much better! Now none of them have a weapon other than their own filthy claws (and maybe a torn off limb possibly). All to do now is to green stuff where I added them to make it as seamless as possible.

Plague Zombies!

Next up is some Plague Zombies. I had a Lost and the Damned army years ago, and converted up a bunch of Guardsmen, Marines, and human zombies. for it. It came out ok; the units of ghouls were a little too mish mashed, and once I painted them in different colors it didn't mesh that well with the rest of the army. I absolutely love the new Plaguebearer models, and just went with them as the basis for the zombies.

Really easy conversion...just hacked off the Plaguebearer horns, rounded off the heads with some green stuff, and wa-la...instant undead. I may make some in the future holding bones and torn off limbs...the gorier the better!

More WIP

Nothing too exciting, just a Nurgly Chaos Champ and a Rhino.

Not too keen on Rhinos with this army though; First Blood is too easy with them it seems.

Nurgle Guard

I'm planning on taking some Imperial Guard allies for my Death Guard, so I needed to come up with some Nurgly IG conversions. I had these old flagellants laying around so I went to work on them with some greenstuff to make them a bit more sinister looking. I can't wait to Nurgle up a Leman Russ or two!

I'll paint these up in some nasty greens and browns and mix them in with some assorted Lost and the Damned looking minis for a real rag tag look.

The first one is a propaganda / psych warfare specialist. I can't imagine anything more unnerving than a gurgling barrage of chanting from the enemy before a battle.

Second guy is a flamer, may have to convert up some more of those to take on hordes.

Third one is just your basic zealot who they didn't even equip with a ranged weapon. Oh well, the world needs fodder too....

Death Guard

Death Guard trooper WIP. Love using the Forgeworld torsos for these guys. He has an old school bolter I found in my bitz box; always dug the look of those.

WIP Typhus

The work on the Death Guard churns along...or should that be slimes along?

He's made from a Chaos Nurgle Lord, a Death Guard helmet, and a Chaos Possessed backpack. Pretty easy conversion, the eyes make him look good and creepy. He's about the size of a regular Termie too...

I had to have him for the zombie tax, which I did not mind paying!

He is an absolute beast in combat, and I plan on converting up some rotted Termies to join him.

WIP Nurgle Daemon Prince

I needed a leader for my Death Guard forces, and a Daemon Prince fit the bill. The conversion potential of these things are crazy, and probably lend more to kit bashing than any other model IMO.

The new stats for DP's are pretty sick too, and they can usually whip about anything that you throw at them.

He's made from the body of a plastic DP, a Forgeworld Nurgle Troll head and arm, and a Hellbrute's power fist I clipped off. The tentacles I made using Green Stff Industries tentacle maker (which is awesome to have in your collection, especially if you play Nurgle).

Khorne Herald on Jugger WIP

Thought a Herald on a jugger would make a good ally leading some Bloodcrushers in my World Eaters force. Finally found a use for that axe! Still needs a little green stuff around the wrists to match it up. I had to use a heat gun to adjust the bloodletter arm to line up with the axe.

Trying to come up with a Khorne themed list...whatya think so far? Uses some Daemon Allies.

Daemon Prince of Khorne – MOK, Wings, Gift of Mutation – 210


10 Chaos Marines – MOK, CCW’s, VOTLW, Champ w/ Fist, Gift of Mutation – 195

Chaos Rhino – Dirge Caster, Havok Launcher – 52


10 Chaos Marines – MOK, CCW’s, VOTLW, Champ w/ Fist, Gift of Mutation – 195

Chaos Rhino – Dirge Caster, Havok Launcher – 52


10 Chaos Marines – MOK, CCW’s, VOTLW, Champ w/ Fist, Gift of Mutation – 195

Chaos Rhino – Dirge Caster, Havok Launcher – 52

5 Chaos Spawn – MOK – 160

Defiler – Dirge Caster – 200

Herald of Khorne – Juggernaut – 105

16 Bloodletters of Khorne – 256
4 Bloodcrushers - 160
Ok, I's actually all about Khorne right now!

I'm in a holding pattern with my Death Guard; still awaiting word from GW if you can indeed take Plague Zombies in units bigger than 10 (which I believe they will). In the meantime, I have a lot of models already completed from my World Eaters force so I'm going to concentrate on them for a while.

I already have some converted Zerkers, some Rhinos, a Defiler, and a Khornate Daemon Prince pretty much done. Once I checked out the new Chaos codex, one unit I wanted to add to my army was some Chaos Spawn. Spawn are back in a big way! I've always loved them fluff wise, even more so now that they can be more effective on the battlefield as tar pits or close combat monsters.

I built these from bitz I had laying around and that's the joy of converting Spawn, pretty much anything goes! To make these seem more Khornate, I added some minotaur bitz; the axes just scream Blood for the Blood God!

Fluff wise, I see these as Chaos Champions who ultimately failed their test at Daemonhood. What a rough life, one moment enjoying all that comes with power and immortality, the next...drooling and screaming as spawndom wracks your body.

First up is the so called leader of the group. I see this guy as one that Khorne has played a joke upon. Instead of being a huge, stalking Bloodthirster, he's stunted him into a little mini-daemon. You just know this guy has short mans complex now. I used an old OOP minotaur body, some Possessed wings, a G├╗lavhar head from LOTR, and a plastic mino-axe to make him.

Next up are the muscle of the unit, the followers of Mini-D. They were really fun to convert up as the sky's the limit when it comes to Spawn.

Last but not least, ol' Scyla Anfingrimm makes an appearance; you just can't keep a good Spawn down!

Next up....some Daemon allies.

Some WIP Ork additions

So now we hear that there is a slight delay for the new Chaos Marine codex. I was expecting it to drop next month, but it looks to be pushed up some.

Disappointing yea, but I do have more than enough to tide me over until then. One army I was working to get finished a while back was my Orks. Trying out my first game of 6th Edition with them got me excited to return to my roots, so I have decided to attempt to finish them before moving on to another army.

I decided I needed more shoota boyz, cause who doesn't love pumping out 60 shots / Overwatch a turn? I had some spare greenskins laying around and quickly got a squad of 30 together. I needed a Nob to lead them and came up with a quick Power Claw armed headbasha for the unit. I used the AOBR Warboss claw attached to a plastic Ork Nob from the same set. I like the pose; it seems like he's pointing at enemies for his squad to target.

Rounding out the new squad was 'Da Vetrun". I envision him as an older Ork who's been with the army for some time, eventually shrinking down in size as old age hits. He looks pretty grizzled for sure. I still need to add some bitz to his staff to cover up the green stuff. I'll use some chain for that.

Next project...a Dakkajet!

WIP Gorgers

Working on getting these Gorgers finished up. I used River Trolls and painted them up in arctic colors. The heads are from some OOP Troll models I had. I dig how they came out so far...

Mournfang WIP

So I completely re-did the Mornfang riders. They just didn't look armored enough and their bellies were pitiful; very unworthy of the Thunderguts tribe! I sculpted new guts, switched to the more armored helms and arms, and started working on smoothing out the tuskgor heads I used to replace the original ones.

These boys are supposed to be the heavy cav of Warhammer, now I feel they look like it...

More Ogre WIP

More troops for the Thunderguts! Some WIP Leadbelchers

Decay is coming

So my Ogres are getting painted, and it looks like I should get finished with them around the time of the release of the new Chaos Codex. I have always dug the forces of Chaos, Khorne and Nurgle being my favorites. I took a Nurgle CSM army to my first GT, and then a Nurgle Lost and the Damned force (man, I miss that list!) to my last one. It is time to re-visit my ol' friend Papa Nurgle once again!

My plan is to assemble a more Lost and the Damned looking army than a traditional Marine one. If what we're hearing about possible Cult Troops is true, I'll get to convert up some zombies, which for a horror fan like myself, is a very fun prospect! I'm looking at some other companies undead models now for ideas as the old GW zombies are getting a little long in the tooth for me. I was really disappointed when they didn't get an updated model when the VC got released a few months back. The scale of them is just so off from the smaller stuff that's out now. I do have plenty of ghoul bitz and plan on using those to make some nasty conversions.

I've been planning this for a while, and have been buying bitz and Chaos stuff cheap the last year or so. The last codex was not that to nice to CSM players, and people dumped a lot of their stuff after its release. I knew eventually they'd get a better deal, so I'm glad I hung on to a few good bitz and models from the last go-round. I have a certain Chaos Sorcerer who is about to make his triumphant return...

In honor of this new army, here's some appropriate metal to get me in the mood!

More Ogres painted

Worked some more on the Ogres today, slowly getting them done...

Ogre WIP's

I'm really enjoying experimenting with the new GW paint line. Sticking to the basics right now, and so far, very easy to use.

Khornate Marines

A few shots of some Worldeaters I've dusted off for the new Codex. I used Beastmen legs with Bezerker bodies, pretty easy conversion and it made them look more bestial.

I can hardly contain myself between the new Edition being released and new Chaos stuff!
